True to its name, the Roundhouse in Deanshanger, England, has an unusual circular layout. More specifically, the timber-clad home arches into a semi-circle with a brick courtyard tucked into the middle.

The property, described as a “giant wooden spaceship” when it was featured on the iconic British show Grand Designs in 2014, is now on the market for £900,000 (that’s just over $1 million). Polished concrete floors and wood-beamed ceiling are lit up by massive floor-to-ceiling windows, while four sets of bifold doors open onto the courtyard.

The house features a spacious open-plan living room and kitchen area that spans 58 feet. One zone flows into the other as the home bends into a wide curve. The communal living spaces occupy the center of the curve while four of the bedrooms are situated closer to the ends of the house.

The master suite sits at one end and opens onto its own patio area. Meanwhile, the cinema room and a fifth bedroom jut off the main curve like a satellite orbiting the spaceship.
